Ranking and student feedback
This course is aimed at ambitious artists and Fine Art graduates who are interested in advancing their art practices, engaging with contemporary art and theory and considering what art might be in relation to today’s social, cultural and political worlds. The MFA Fine Art is a practice-based course, structured through key areas of contemporary art practice: painting, fine print, media, sculpture and expanded practices. There is an emphasis on cross-disciplinary dialogue and debate while supporting specialised practice in the above areas. MFA students are based in the Annex, NCAD’s new postgraduate hub at 101-103 James St. This facility contains dedicated studios, seminar rooms and a project space for testing new work. The School of Fine Art has recently introduced a Studio Residency and we are delighted to announce that the inaugural artist in residence for 2016/2017 is Níamh McCann. Níamh is based in the postgraduate studios and will be contributing to the MFA programme.
The programme is open to graduates with an honours degree award of 2.2 or higher, or an equivalent academic or professional qualification in a related discipline. English language: Students who have not been educated through English must show proof of achieving IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6 in the writing section on the academic version) or an equivalent score in another accepted test.
